Skyfire VideoQ for iPhone and iPad now available

Skyfire Labs have released their new iPhone and iPad apps, Skyfire VideoQ, as a method of watching flash videos.

Skyfire VideoQ™ is a new kind of App that lets you watch Flash Videos while browsing with Safari or any iPad/iPhone browser! Simply click the ‘Mail Link to this Page’ on any browser to email the video URL to your ‘Queue’ and open the App.

  • Simply register your email address in the App.
  • Use the “Mail Link to this Page” button in Safari or any browser to email a webpage with a Flash video to video@skyfire.com.
  • Videos sent from your email address will appear in your Skyfire VideoQ.
  • Copy the URL of a webpage that has a Flash video and open Skyfire VideoQ.
  • Install our bookmarklet into Safari. Once you find a page with a Flash video, just use the bookmarket to send the page to your Skyfire VideoQ.

One of the biggest complaints about iOS is the incompatibility with Flash. Skyfire VideoQ may not completely fill that gap, but since a huge amount of Flash content on the web is video, it's a great solution for many people.

Skyfire VideoQ is available on the iPhone and iPad for $1.99. Screenshots and video after the break.

Siege Hero updated with Age of Discovery, 75 new levels

Armor Games have updated their iPhone and iPad game, Siege Hero.

Tap the screen to fire. Find the weak spots. Loot the treasures. Save the innocent villagers.

Tear down the 150 castles across two Ages. If you're good enough to earn Gold on each castle you'll unlock the extra looting levels in the Treasure Map. Over 5-hours of gameplay with much more to come.

The update includes:

  • Age of Discovery now available. Use your Siege skills to free the oppressed and become the Hero once again.
  • 75 new levels
  • 6 new characters
  • 7 new achievements
  • New Weapons
  • Many hours of challenging gameplay

I've played some of the first few levels of Siege Hero and I'll definitely be playing some more. It reminds me a little of Angry Birds, but instead of catapulting birds in the 3rd person, I'm throwing weapons in the first person. It's fun!

Siege Hero is available for $0.99 on the iPhone and $3.99 on the iPad. Screenshots after the break.

Ed Emberley's Shake & Make for iPhone now available

Ed Emberley's Shake & Make, an iPhone puzzle game by Night & Day Studios, has been released.

The whimsical, learn-to-draw illustrations of Ed Emberley come to life with this quirky puzzle game. See the picture, study its layout, then shake your iPhone or iPod touch and the pieces will fall to the floor. Listen to vintage loops as you race against the clock to put the picture back together in under a minute.

  • Over 100 puzzles
  • Solve puzzles in 60 seconds, earn a higher score the faster you solve
  • Unlock higher levels with more complex images
  • Try Twirly mode for extra silliness!
  • Cool, retro music from the 70s
  • For younger kids: turn off the timer to allow more time to figure out the puzzle, or try solving the puzzle by tilting and rotating the phone and watch each piece snap into place.

I really like how Shake & Make is accessible for children and adults

Ed Emberley's Shake & Make is available on the iPhone for $1.99. Screenshots and video after the break.
